Release ID: 293 Rates Requests

Manchester, United Kingdom. 1st October 2005. Rate Request system released.

September 2005 saw the release of the long awaited Rate Request system that allows exporters and importers to post online rate requests for their shipments. This information is made available to Freightnet’s Premium Members and has been developed in order to satisfy the ever increasing volume of email freight enquiries which it handles every year.

“The previous system only allowed one company to be contacted at any one time making it a rather laborious job if an enquiry was being sent to several companies” commented Freightnet’s Editorial Director, Paul Smith. “Now the new system means that enquirers just enter their rate request once and our system automatically delivers it to the appropriate Premium Members.”

Furthermore he added, “We handle over 1,000,000 freight enquiries every year and this is a further step to improve our site and enhance the service to our Members.”

Importers, exporters or enquirers can log in for free and post their enquiries using an online form.
